SPAM, SPAM and SPAM on SPAM

My typical daily spam load has been steady at a couple hundred messages a day for some time now. However, yesterday I had approximately 1500 messages, all but a hundred or so spam. This morning, I had over 14,000 messages!

I haven't changed my net behavior recently, so apparently there is something new in spammer behavior.

My previous volume was handled nicely by getting SpamAssassin working. Now that I'm getting enough spam for 100 people, it looks like I'll have to do something more drastic...

UPDATE 2003-08-21: It looks like this volume increase could be due to the SoBig worm's recent activities...
